Bill Nye says the Bible was written 5000 yrs ago. Is he just bad at math or simply an idiot?

Which version? Some were written last year.
The Bible was written by men and has been edited so many times that it is not the same document.
This is the reason one needs the guidance of the Holy Spirit ....for DISCERNMENT.
So ignore the written word and go with your heart?
Nope. The written word is correct. The spiritual discernment allows to to understand the differences between the different translations whether it is the King James Version or any other.
I’ll just stick to what I know. Take some stuff from here and there and move on with my life. Living as good as I can.
If you are not living as good as Jesus, you will need him as your mediator when you die.
I’m good. I don’t want to go to a place with rules as petty as the Christian religion.
Wait, there are people who believe if you pull it out quick when yer doing the nooky, she won't get pregnant. I hate to answer that one
I answered bad at math, because I'm worse at it
Book of Job is approximately 4000 years old.
What would we expect? He's not even a real scientist. And he's obviously not a Christian. I would say that "idiot" seems to fit him very well.
Professor Proton is better
At least he isn't a flat earther..
Good point. Another strike against him.
Who are the flat earthers that liked your comment? I want to know...
You’re asking the wrong person. None of them are mine.
*television actor. There is no science this man has brought forth.
He also said abortion is okay because the people that disagree with it are white men. He a complete idiot.
Why is ANYONE still listening to Mr Nye? He’s a conman that will do and say anything for a buck.
Bad choice of poll answers but I went with math because most of the Bible wasn’t written that long ago.
None of it was
He says lots of stupid things.
Oldest book from the Bible was written ~3,500 years ago. Are you really this pedantic? It's a fairy tale book from millennia ago, and his point remains the same.
By all evidence it’s the finest history of the period. What’s your problem with it?
I’m not religious or anything so I’m not exactly sure. But I’m i just did a google search and it said Old Testament was written in 6 BC. The year is 2019. 6bc is 600 years before 0. 2019+600= 2619
2619 does not equal 3500 or 5000?
Again I’m not religious so I’m not sure, but i think both of your math are wrong
The writings are much older, the collection not so much so.
We actually believe that the book of Job might be the oldest, and the events included in Job are believed to have occurred about the time of Abraham, around 2000 BC, though the account could have been written later. So 4,000 years ago AT THE MOST.
Tsar, the Old Testament was actually written by numerous authors, over hundreds of years, in different places, not at one time and definitely not as late as 6 BC. 6 BC was actually 6 years before the year 0, not 600 years, also. (I also don’t think there was a year 0, just 1 AD, etc.)
The way I understand it, it would be 1 BC and then the next year was 1 AD. I could be wrong about that, though. Anyone else know?
I believe you are right.
You're right that there was no year 0. It goes from 1 BC to 1 AD.
Thanks to both of you!
Sorry I meant 6th century BC
I thought you might, Tsar! I sometimes get those things confused. The other day, I said something about it being 2 centuries since Jesus, when I meant 2 millennium, of course! LOL Nobody called me on it, and I couldn’t remember which poll it was in to go back and correct myself! 😂🤣😂🤣
Normally I wouldn't correct you for this, but since we're on the topic, it's actually "millennia" if you're using the plural version. Millennium is singular.
Oops! You’re right! Thanks for the correction. Don’t know what I was thinking! Lol
Just curious, Scott. When do you believe the Bible was written?
And yes, Bill Nye is an idiot. I love watching Ken Ham debate with him.
Bill Nye slayed Ken Hamm in their debate. How embarrassing for creationists.
They’ve had several debates. And like any debate, people interpret however they want. I usually watch them knowing who I support and find the opposition to look like an idiot, but I still learn from both sides. My opinion is that Bill Nye made himself look like an idiot, and Ken Ham presented his viewpoint quite well with Biblical AND scientific evidence. But, tomato tomahto.
Bill Nye is simply an idiot!
Is this the science guy who believes random molecules by chance were bound together to eventually form organisms without a Creator?
You’re saying I have to choose one or the other? That’s not fair LOL
And getting the dates of the writing of the Bible wrong is the LEAST of his problems in this clip! 😂🤣😂🤣
Right. He also said conservatives believe that every time a man and a woman have sex that they conceive a child. 😂
Because they do.
The way he kept pausing and searching for words, I really think that he’s suffering from some form of dementia. This is NOT the Bill Nye from earlier years that was on top of things, could explain science so that little kids could understand it, etc. He apparently doesn’t even understand conception! So sad that he’s sunk this low!
Conservatives believe sex leads to conception every time? 🤔
Not this conservative. I took biology in high school, taught biology to my kids, and have read numerous books about conception, pregnancy, & childbirth! LOL
Hmmm 50% of Americans think that every time sex happens a baby is formed..... hmmmmmmmm.... in that case we would have 50% virgins... but even virgins don’t think that, so we have a population of like 90% virgins.
You sir, are a genius. Your iq is too high for me
Yeah, that’s one of the reasons I think he’s slipping into dementia. He can NOT truly believe that, Tsar!
Unfortunately, some people are convinced of their intelligence, they could say something stupid and claim it is the greatest breakthrough of mankind.
